It usually runs about three weeks and many different art pieces are found through the city of Grand Rapids. It it a free community event which draws tens of thousands of people in a weekend.
Luckily, my husband works for the the best news station in town, which adds bonus perks for us. We were able to park in a prime location for free. The station has a venue set up downtown where they are airing live and he is in charge of it..
We spent a good four hours downtown and we still did not see all of the art, but here are a bunch of neat ones!
The United States made out of frying pans.. One of my favorites!
Cascade is a large site-specific interactive sculpture comprised of thousands of unwanted CD's, motion-responsive sound and light. Upon investigation, a fusion of sound, light and refracting color will create a visually symphonic experience!
Rain is a kinetic sculpture using 7600 squares of silver leaf on polyester film. The squares are suspended within a 10 ft. cube of space and move with ambient air currents.
Love this one.. Brings me back to my child hood... Lots of TOYS! Reminds me from a Toy Story scene..Love him! He is the best and took me on a great city tour.. I get lost in GR...
The art was really neat.. I think I need another weekend down there to see more!!
